How to obtain the SME status you deserve

August 01 2016

You have to be recognised as a SME (Small and Medium-sized enterprise) by the EC to apply for funding opportunities in the Horizon 2020 program. The one-million-euro question is: “are you an SME?”

You have recently started your own company in life sciences and developed a beautiful product that you would like to bring to the market as soon as possible. You have many plans, ideas, wishes and dreams, but you lack the financial capital to realise them.

Or, you are a company that has been around for a while and you have recently proudly exceeded a headcount of 200! You have some products in the pipeline and would like to take the next step from pre-clinical to clinical.

However, there is one obstacle on the road; you have to be recognised as a SME (Small and Medium-sized enterprise) by the EC to apply for these type of grants. The one-million-euro question is: Are you an SME?
